The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) presented four Herb Wegner Memorial Awards at its annual dinner Monday night, including Tim Haegelin, retired President and CEO of Generations FCU. Haegelin received a Lifetime Achievement award.
“I was lucky because I was blessed with a board that embraced the credit union difference and then made sure I had the tools to succeed,” said Haegelin after accepting his award. “We are here - not for ourselves and not for the almighty dollar - but for our members, and their families, and their children, and their pursuit of the American dream.”
This year’s winners joined an elite group of 51 individuals and 24 organizations whose efforts over the past 26 years have earned them the recognition of Herb Wegner Memorial Awards. More than 740 credit union leaders and supporters attended the event held in conjunction with CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC).
